Raisin Bread Pudding Recipe With Strawberries, Rhubarb, and Maple Syrup

This Raisin Bread Pudding Recipe doesn’t contain any eggs; Instead, sourdough bread is tossed with maple syrup, melted butter, and a little sugar and left to soak for a short time. Feel free to switch out the fruit based on what’s in season. Rhubarb, strawberries, raspberries, or peaches taste terrific - consider mixing them together - while apple and cranberries are great options for the colder months.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups sourdough bread torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 2 cups strawberries quartered
  • 2 cups rhubarb chopped
  • 1 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Generously grease a 9x13 oven-safe dish with butter.
  • Toss torn sourdough bread, sugar, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Drizzle with melted butter and toss to evenly coat. Set aside.
  • Add strawberries, rhubarb, raisins, maple syrup, and lemon juice to a separate bowl. Stir well to coat all fruit with liquid.
  • Place one half of fruit mixture into prepared baking dish. Top with all of the butter-soaked bread. Scatter remaining fruit evenly over bread layer and bake 25-30 minutes until bread is lightly browned and rhubarb is soft.

Notes

  1. Feel free to substitute any bread you like. We love sourdough, but any bread will do!
  2. Swap the 2 cups of strawberries and 2 cups of rhubarb for any other seasonal fruit you love.
  3. The base of the recipe is essentially a cinnamon raisin bread pudding, however feel free to leave the raisins out if you don’t like them! They’re totally optional!
